This book serves as a good reminder that Boaz may not come in the packaging you expect. And that if you are sincere in following the Lord, you've got to take Him at his whole word...not just and choose according to your biases.

I loved this book because it deals with the subtle prejudice, sometimes so long embraced that it is not recognized.

Creative and simple recipes. A number of the recipes use soy or gluten based meat substitutes which are rather high in sodium. Otherwise low sugar and salt usage. A lot of the recipes have low-fat or non-dairy options, which is nice.

This book is truly inspirational. It talks about how trials can come into any believer's life. It doesn't necessarily mean that the believer is lacking in faith, favor, or righteousness. It is as the scripture says, "Rain falls on the just and the unjust...". We just have to remember that no matter what happens, we have to make the quality decision to trust God and lean on Him. He had a solution before we realized there was a problem. In this book a Christian sister faced a trial that none of us would ever choose to face. She endured betrayal, hurt, anger, fear, much stress .... she even got caught up in her flesh a few times. And with God, she survived.

This book was a quick easy read. It illustrated how all that glitters is certainly not gold, you can't judge a book by it's cover, and that we need to be careful how we treat others. It powerfully illustrates the length that true love will cause one to go to.

I have to admit, I only read the book because I had "Promises beyond Jordan", which indicated that this book was "somewhat a Prequel" to it. When I saw the cover I thought it had to be a mistake. Who are the guys on the cover supposed to be? But I read it anyway. I didn't know what to expect, but I ended up liking it. It was presented as the journal entries of several very different characters. It provides a good introduction to each and lays the foundation for what happens in "Promises....".
